Keb' Mo': The Reflection

"MR: Speaking of something special, the song 'We Don't Need It' is really beautiful and pretty topical considering the economy. I love how you tell your family you were laid off and how you now won't be able to get things for them like running shoes for your son and a new dress for your daughter. Then, one by one, your family tells you what they're going to do to help, like rake leaves and have a yard sale, because all they need is you. KM: As a kid, that's what I felt. I grew up in a middle class Compton family with my father. I didn't care about the fact my father was broke, I was with my dad" (Mike Ragogna, "A Conversation with Keb Mo," Huffington Post, 8/8/11).
